Terry is the chief car tester for Emery Motors and Frank is an Engineer. Jane has just been hired to work in publicity. Frank and Terry both want Jane to be their girl. Terry has designed a new carburetor that should bring him fame and money, but he cannot get it to work correctly. Terry and Gadget have tested it for over a year, but it still is not perfected. Emery Motors assigns Frank to help Terry with the carburetor, but Terry is not happy because Frank is an Engineer and is also vying for Jane. They finish the carburetor, and to test it, they enter a car in the Indianapolis 500 race. Terry is not yet satisfied with the carburetor before the big race even though it has passed all the tests.

The end of the film has a fictional recreation of Malcolm Campbell's record-breaking 300 mph drive at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. However, his book,"My Thirty Years of Speed", published a year earlier, was not used as the basis of this movie. See more »

Having acted with Robert Taylor and Clark Gable in previous films, the 28 year old James Stewart appeared in this somewhat dull film titled 'Speed'. Like Cary Grant, his early films lacked a good script and good director, but these run of the mill films allowed Stewart to engage with the big stars of the time.
